UNCG Curriculum Guide

Retroactive Changes
We will no longer accept retroactive requests. Institutional best practice does not support current action to affect prior term curricula. This impacts consistency across the Bulletin, Banner Catalog and Degree Works. Students are allowed to move forward to a newer catalog. For those that are disadvantaged by moving to a new catalog, departments can accommodate them on a case by case basis by substituting courses and/or waiving hours in their major.


New Exception Request to Regulation Related to Fostering Student Success (120-hour Degrees)
The Regulation Related to Fostering Student Success (UNC Policy 400.1.5 [R]), amended by the UNC System Board of Governors and effective Jan. 31, 2018, states that the required semester hours for a baccalaureate degree are set for UNC System schools at 120 semester credit hours. By fall 2019, all UNCG programs must revise their curricula to be in compliance. Per the policy,

Baccalaureate degree programs shall require no more than 120 semester credit hours. An institution with compelling reasons as to why a program’s requirements must exceed 120 semester credit hours may petition to have an exception approved by its board of trustees.

To seek an exception from the Board of Trustees of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, please complete this form and submit it to the Dean’s Office by Sept. 17, 2018. The Dean will forward approved requests to the Provost by Oct. 1, 2018.

Red Pin The Curriculum Guide website and the curriculum forms are currently under review and update. Several of the forms have been completed, and there is a new layout to the site. The expanded menus are the same format, but some of the information has been moved. Please note the following changes... (click to expand)

  • Course form names have been changed, eliminating the form letter and separating the new course proposal form from the amended course proposal form.
  • Any related forms you may need for submission are linked under the form heading. For example, under the Routine Change Course Forms heading, you’ll find the Routine Change Form, instructions, consultation forms, the online course approval checklist and a course syllabus template.
  • Form G Program Revision is the only program form that has already been updated, all the other program forms currently remain the same.
  • All the remaining resources have been moved under “Other Information”.
  • All forms are submitted to curriculum@uncg.edu after approval by the department and unit-level committees. Forms will be distributed to the appropriate university-wide committee from there.
